Julian Michael

I am a 3rd-year graduate student at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I am advised by Luke Zettlemoyer and I am a member of UW NLP.

My research is on formal semantics of natural language — in particular, how to design, annotate, and model semantics in a scalable, data-driven way while taking advantage of our understanding of linguistic structure. I have worked on approaches to crowdsourcing annotation for syntactic parsing, semantic role labeling, predicate-argument structure. See the QA-SRL Project website for more.

You can find me on Twitter, GitHub, or email: julianjm (at) cs.washington.edu.
